Bryant Young Quits As Florida Defensive Line Coach

Florida/Collegiate Images/Getty Images(GAINESVILLE, Fla.) -- Florida defensive line coach Bryant Young resigned on Wednesday, so he can focus on spending more time with his family.

“After heavy consideration and giving over two decades to the game of football, I have made a personal decision to resign from my position at the University of Florida in order to pursue more time with my family.” Young said.

Young, a father of six, played 14 seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, with whom he was a four-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle.

“I am humbled by and grateful for the opportunity I have had to positively influence the hardworking student-athletes and young men whom I will surely miss,” Young said. “However, I have come to the realization that it is time to invest more in my family during this fleeting season in life.”

Young spent time as a coach at Notre Dame and San Jose State before joining Will Muschamp’s staff in 2011.
